HARMON SURNAME DNA PROJECT
HARMON/HARMAN SURNAME DNA PROJECT
including variations of the surname as
HERMAN, HERRMAN, HERMANN, HERMON
ANTHROGENEALOGY* is the merging of two scientific
fields. Anthropology is the
scientific study of human beings**. Genealogy is an account of the descent of a person,
family, or group from an ancestor or from older forms and the study of family pedigrees. **
Anthrogenealogy is the culmination of these two methods in order to determine if two or
more people are related, even if they are unknown to each other, by testing their genetic
makeup. *FamilyTreeDNA **Websters Dictionary
By testing the Y-chromosome of males with a particular surname, we can construct a lineage
"tree" of the many branches of families with that surname.
Genetic testing is a leading edge tool in our quest to find our ancestors.
When public, historical and family records have led you to a brick wall on an individual, DNA
testing can possibly break that wall down.
This project tests the y-chromosome of Harmon/Harman/Herrmann, etc. males. All men with
the surname of Harmon are welcome to participate. Only men carry the y-chromosome
and each man has his father's y-chromosome, his grandfather's, etc.
The purpose then is to test Harmon males to see if a match is found. Matches indicate that you
both had a most recent common ancestor (MRCA) at some point in time. When a match is
found, these individuals compare notes on their historical data and should be able to find
new leads in their search for that elusive ancestor.
This website is intended to share the results of the participants. Names will not be used for
confidentiality purposes, however they will be referred to by kit numbers and their oldest
known Price ancestor.
